Given in a Classy '
Way at Gayety
- Pretty Gertrude Hayes, with her
sparkling wit, pleasing personality and
charming figure carries off the lion's
share of honors in "Follies of the Day,"
Barney Gerard's musical extravaganza,
which opened Its week engagement last
night at the Gayety.
The lines of the show are practically
the same as last year, but Miss Hayes
has managed to brighten It up even more,
and a record breaking crowd of first
nlghters were not stingy with their ap
preciation. The "Follies" present two burlettas,
one "Hot Dog" and the other "What
Does the Publlo Want" , '
In' each Mr. Gerard Yias daringly re
moved himself from the threadbare,
slap-stick variety of shows that lose
patrons of burlesque every day. "Hot
Dog" Is a laughing farce about a vendor
of succulent Wienerwursts, and "What
Does the Public Want" Is a skit that
illustrates an argument between Oscar
Hamraersteln, David Belasco, Al Reeves
and George Cohan. Each character en
deavors to produce his own Interpreta
tion of the public theatrical desire, and
between the four the effect is most pleas
in. George Murphy has the part In the
show made famous by Sam Sldman, and
he gives a creditable performance. Ann
Propp la a daring little creature who
wins friends easliy, and she received
many encores. Others to score were Ches
ter Nelson, Elsie May, Dorothy BeVber,
Edith Malvore. Jack Smith. John Wil
liams and Mildred Laurie.
The chorus girls are well chosen three
of them especially.
Gerard's show calls for an enormous
amount of expensively beautiful scenery
and some novelties in brilliant costumes.
It is not exaggeration to say that it is
one of the very best shows on the
Hand Loses Roll
And Ring for Girl
As has oft been remarked heretofore,
nd as G. M. Moore of Lawrence, Kan.,
learned to his sorrow last night, the
course of true love Is a rocky road in
deed. Moore worked all summer in the
harvest fields of South Dakota and when
he came into Omaha yesterday the first
thing he did waa to buy a diamond en
gagement ring for the girl down in Kan
sas whom he some day hopes to wed.
The second thing he did is what forced
the above conclusion upon him. It waa
to attempt entry Into the ranks of the
- He entered a lower Douglas street sa
loon and peeled a $5 bill off his roll and
announced that he wanted everybody to
soar with him. "Take this money, bar-
creature. I want to bl-plane beer for
the bunch." He laughed loudly at his
wit, and the bar-flies laughed with him
A few . moments they were laughing at
him, because one of their number had
"touched" Moore for the ring nd for the
roll, which contained about $48.
Detectives Rich and Psanowakl after
wards arrested Frank Gran and R. Mes
ser in connection with the affair. Doth
Mien denied that they took the stuff.
CREIGHTON ENROLLMENT .

of lack of material.
The new gymnasium is progressing
steadily and will begin to rise above the

several years ago by Mr. Mayfleld to

reasons the start proved a failure,

the venture is a sure thing 'this time,"
Mayfield said yesterday. "The Omaha
Library board appointed a committee
some weeks ago to investigate the mat

Action will probably be taken during the
coming week by the board authorizing
the expenditure of enough money to
carry the thing through."
"We have evary reason to predict suc
